DURBAN - ONE of Durban’s blossoming gqom stars, TDK MaCassette, released her first song under her new record label on Friday.
TDK, whose real name is Thandeka Mkhwanazi is also known as the ‘gqom barbie’, not to be mistaken with Babes Wodumo, who is known as the ‘gqom queen’.
The 26-year-old performer was signed by Universal Music in February this year and has been featured in gqom hits by Rude Boyz and DJ Maphorisa in the past year.
Speaking to Independent Media on Friday, TDK said she never imagined she would be a singer despite growing up in the entertainment space, mainly as a dancer.
She said she got her break in the music industry when she was providing corporate services to DJ Maphorisa after they had been to a corporate gig.
